In the first major project since the bungalow colonies and hotels in New York state's borscht belt fell on hard times 30 years ago, a developer plans to demolish the legendary Concord Hotel in the Catskills and build a $500 million resort, with a hotel and conference center, golf village, spa ranch, entertainment center and wilderness area. Louis R. Cappelli, a Westchester County developer who bought the Concord property on Kiamesha Lake a year ago, said he planned to begin construction by Labor Day on property of more than 1,600 acres -- twice the size of Central Park.

Update: The man who says his photo was used as part of the hoax lives in London, and has given an interview to The Baltimore Sun. The disbelief over unruly crowds fighting and being pepper sprayed over Air Jordan Concords turned to mourning when it was reported on social media and blogs that a young man, 18-year-old Tyreek Amir Jacobs, had been killed for the coveted shoes. As the rumors put it, Jacobs was a teen from Washington DC and killed in Maryland, possibly at the Wheaton Mall.

NEW CONCORD, Ohio -- Lying face-down in an old chest that antiques dealer Jack Bogart recently bought was a dusty, yellowing poster from 1962. "New Concord Salutes John H. Glenn Jr.," boasted the big, red letters splashed across a picture of the hometown boy just returning from space.In many ways, this quiet village of 2,200 people in southeastern Ohio is still as patriotic and proud, still as gleefully all-American as it was when Glenn, now the state's senior U.S. senator, paraded down Main Street after his history-making orbit of the Earth.

CONCORD, Mass. -- The old house rises stark on a small hill over Virginia Road, a thoroughfare with a long life if a short run. It was the first road into Concord when the town was established in 1635, three miles of curves and plunging hills bordered by alder and birch.The house stands empty and silent. Conifers embrace its front corners. Rhododendron crawls by the porch. A small American flag decal is fading in a window above the door.A weather-worn Adirondack chair remains outside the back door.

FALLSBURG, N.Y. -- It is 1963, and a naive 17-year-old girl from New York City vacations with her family at a majestic resort with a private airfield. She meets a dance instructor. They fall in love.The story is the plot line from the 1987 movie "Dirty Dancing," but the setting is real. Grossinger's, the resort where the movie was filmed, was real. The boomtown feel of this Catskills hamlet was real. And the neighboring Concord Hotel was real: all 2,800 rooms, two bathrooms to a suite, with a swimming pool the size of a lake.

It delivers rounded, blackberry fruit with hints of chocolate, plums and smoked meat. It's ready to drink during the current High Holy Days but has the staying power to develop over many a future Yom Kippur.

One floor below is a copy store, a Rite-Aid pharmacy and a lunch spot called Spike's Teriyaki Bowl.But from humble beginnings, the Concord University School of Law is threatening to drag the future of legal education kicking and screaming into cyberspace.
